Paedogenesis was found to occur in 1.8% of alates of Schizaphis graminum (Rond.), but the frequency was not increased by selection of progeny resulting from paedogenesis. Individuals reproducing by paedogenesis produced an average of 1.7 nymphs in 1.3 days before developing wings. This is the first known report of paedogenesis in the family Aphididae
